Spring

Sunny with a high of 76°F/24°C today and 79°F/26°C tomorrow, and Jackie Chan is not dead. What else can I say?

Double negative: Houston policy makers promised $12.8 million toward bike projects. City revenues dwindled, and said policy makers pondered taking the money away. Bike advocates came out in large numbers protesting the threatened about-face. Transportation decision makers reneged on their reversal. Remember Dan’s first rule of bicycle advocacy: show up!.

I learned earlier this week that actress Anne Francis (Forbidden Planet) passed last January. I met her daughter Jane in Colorado in 2002. Jane’s married to one of my old high school friends, Robert, who spends his days at the Pentagon writing up wonky outer space policy papers. Since Anne Francis has a Bacon number of 2 and I’m two degrees removed from Anne Francis, I guess I have a Bacon number of 4 through her.

    I am pleased that Jackie Chan is alive and well. However, the high here tomorrow is 47°F and Friday has a Winter Storm Warning. What is this “Spring” you speak of?
